About Malala Fund
Malala Fund is working for a world where all girls can learn and lead. Malala Fund advocates for resources and policy changes needed to give all girls a secondary education, invests in local education leaders and amplifies the voices of girls fighting for change.
Why girls’ education?
Secondary education for girls can transform communities, countries and our world. It is an investment in economic growth, a healthier workforce, lasting peace and the future of our planet.
Girls’ education strengthens economies and creates jobs. Millions of educated girls mean more working women with the potential to add up to $12 trillion to global growth.
Educated girls are healthier citizens who raise healthier families. Educated girls are less likely to marry young or contract HIV — and more likely to have healthy, educated children. Each additional year of school a girl completes cuts both infant mortality and child marriage rates.
Communities are more stable and can recover faster after the conflict when girls are educated. When a country gives all its children secondary education, it cuts its risk of war in half. Education is vital for security around the world because extremism grows alongside inequality.
Investing in girls’ education is good for our planet
The Brookings Institution calls secondary schooling for girls the most cost-effective and best investment against climate change.
Research also suggests that girls’ education reduces a country vulnerability to natural disasters.
Malala Yousafzai is co-founder and board member of Malala Fund. Malala began her campaign for education at age 11 when she anonymously blogged for the BBC about life under the Taliban in Pakistan’s Swat Valley.
Inspired by her father’s activism, Malala soon began advocating publicly for girls’ education — attracting international media attention and awards.
At age 15, she was shot by the Taliban for speaking out. Malala recovered in the United Kingdom and continued her fight for girls. In 2013 she founded Malala Fund with her father, Ziauddin.
A year later, Malala received the Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of her efforts to see every girl complete 12 years of free, safe, quality education.
Malala is currently a student at Oxford University pursuing a degree in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics.
